Harpadon (subgenus of Saurus) Lesueur [C. A.] 1825:50 [ref. 5024]. Masc. Salmo microps Lesueur 1825. Type by original designation (also monotypic). Spelled Harpodon by Cuvier 1829:314 [ref. 995]. Lesueur states, "type of a new subgenus near to Saurus"; it is somewhat unclear if he was describing Harpadon as a subgenus of Salmo or Saurus. Spelling of subfamily correctly is Harpadontinae. •Valid as Harpadon Lesueur 1825 -- (Klausewitz 1983 [ref. 6011], Okiyama 1984:207 [ref. 13644], Fujii in Masuda et al. 1984:62 [ref. 6441], Paxton et al. 1989:242 [ref. 12442], Ataur Rahman 1989:70 [ref. 24860] as Harpodon, Russell 1999:1932 [ref. 24747], Sato & Nakabo 2002:44 [ref. 25953], Ataur Rahman 2003:86 [ref. 31338] as Harpodon, Hoese et al. 2006:473 [ref. 29051], Kottelat 2013:270 [ref. 32989], Ganga et al. 2016:1 [ref. 34160]).
